Great Lead Leg Drills to Improve Your Hurdlers!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, September 20, 2013

Before you can take on a full flight of hurdles one must first learn the movements as discussed here in the “Lead Leg Drill.” Listen to former All-American, Elisha Brewer, and watch as this is a very important drill to master before putting an athlete on the track with a full flight of hurdles.

When coaching your athletes you can get a 180 degree or 360 degree visual on their movements. When coaching any sport, it’s important to have a well rounded view of an athlete’s movements so your coaching points and critiques can also be well rounded.

In this segment, University of Kansas Assistant Coach, Elisha Brewer has her athletes demonstrate a “Straight Leg Stretch” and a “Roll Over” exercise. Another effective stretching drill that is covered in this section is the “Walk Out” drill. This drill also focuses on stretching out the hamstrings while also requiring the athlete to use core and upper body strength to help with balance.

Coach Brewer’s finest point in the Dynamic Stretch portion of this video is that “you’re focusing on improving your flexibility over time. Flexibility can be improved upon: that is something that can be improved upon on by focusing on it on a daily basis.”

Dynamic Stretching Drills for a Proper Hurdles Warm Up!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, August 23, 2013

Kansas Hurdles Coach, Elisha Brewer, discusses the importance of Dynamic Stretches and how each stretch contributes to the flexibility of hurdling. While each event in track and field requires some level of flexibility, the hurdles are the one running event that puts your body in it’s most unnatural position, thus requiring the need to be flexible. Coach Brewer discusses how each movement increases flexibility necessary to become a successful hurdler.

The drills begin with some basic & movements that are directly related to hurdle movements and progress to some more complex movements that focus more on stretching out the lower back and hamstrings. She begins with “High Knee Pulls” which focuses directly on stretching the lower back and hamstrings, two parts of the body where flexibility are key to become a successful hurdler. From here she rolls right into the “Groin Stretch”, “Hip Circles”, and the “Heel/Toe Walk.”
